Excerpt from Catalogue of the Crosby Brown Collection of Musical Instruments of All Nations, Vol. 13: Prepared Under the Direction, and Issued With the Authorization, of the Donor

The title of the collection indicates that it contains musical instruments of all nations. It has been the aim of the donor to bring together specimens of all the representative musical instruments known to have been used by man. The work Of the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Assyria, Greece, Rome, etc., has, of course, largely perished, and a knowledge of their ma sical instruments, with the exception of a comparatively small number preserved in European museums or figured on the monuments, it is consequently impossible to obtain. In this field, therefore, completeness has not been sought. Some of the more important examples of those extant are, however, here represented by reproductions, and the Egyptian specimens are grouped together as a type case in Gallery 26 in order to form a suitable introduction to the European collection.
